About this event
This trip is ideal for beginners and provides an opportunity for you to do an induction session at City Bloc allowing you to go there and climb on your own or join us on future visits to the centre. City Bloc is an indoor bouldering centre which is the product of four former members of the Great British Bouldering Team. They created a bouldering wall that allows beginners to develop the best climbing techniques and also provides experienced climbers quality competition style routes. Bouldering involves climbing a route of around 10 moves to navigate the problem using just shoes and chalk to give you grip, no ropes involved.
This induction will provide you with the necessary skills and knowledge to independently boulder without supervision. It is vital for complete beginners and will allow you to access future GOGA climbing trips or to climb at City Bloc by yourself.
We will be leaving at 12.30pm from University and taking you down to City Bloc climbing all on the other side of Leeds city centre. We will be climbing from 13:00 to 14:00 and have a qualified instructor to take you through what you need to know and get you on the wall. Once off the wall we will have a little time there for a drink from the cafe and then transport you back to the University for roughly 2.45pm.
This will cover:
- transport to and from City Bloc
- hire of equipment
- tuition on the wall
